    Clay Pigeon, The (1949) — (Movie Clip) Only Man In The Navy

    Most viewers would have known that Bill Williams (as Jim, the partial-amnesiac hospital-escapee and suspected traitor sailor) and Barbara Hale (as Martha), who meet here, were husband and wife off screen; good thing and well-played by director Richard Fleischer, in The Clay Pigeon, 1949.
